German American Partnership Program

German American Partnership Program (GAPP)

The German American Partnership Program (GAPP) has existed at CLHS since 1985. It's an educational exchange partnership between Concordia Lutheran High School in Fort Wayne, and Zeppelin Gymnasium in Lüdenscheid, Deutschland.

Each participating guest student is partnered with a student and his/her family in the host country. All German partners are students of the Zeppelin Gymnasium and live in the Lüdenscheid area (including the small nearby towns of Halver, Herscheid, Schalksmühle, usw.) All Fort Wayne participants must be German language students at CLHS.

Our travel groups are limited to a maximum of 20 students per visit as selected by the GAPP coordinator for the respective school. An application is to be completed by each participant, which is then sent to the host country where they are paired with a host student.

The next trip is June 4-28, 2024.
